Ok you've convinced me to give this a shot after a lot of years. I had this tape forever, mostly for sentimental reasons, and I never thought the show was that special (except for the 3rd set). I won a raffle ticket (the only thing I've ever won in my life) and went by myself, but I never thought it was life-changing. That I reserve for shows like the 73 Pauly Pavilion show. It was a terrific event though: a costume party with Animal House, The Blues Brothers, and the Dead at midnight. I did a great Groucho Marx and I have photos somewhere. Maybe one of these days I'll dig them up and post them for old times sake. Thanks for the suggestion.

I noticed on the DVD Greg Errico is stuck on timbales throughout Not Fade Away, so when they are about to start Around & Around Bill lets Greg play his drums. Nice of him.

I though that was cool also . Bill seemed to be in a good mood that night . At one point he gets off his drums, quickly slaps on his hat and does this lithe prance off stage .
